These days fitness has leaped to an entirely new level. The long arm of technology has not left the fitness industry out. I had been talking with my friend about how fitness has improved now. He had been gaining weight recently and wanted to shed his weight, but had no success so far. I told him about how I used my grappling dummy to get fit.

In addition to the modern fitness devices, there are the new fitness trackers that have made fitness easier and efficient. The trackers lure users with their promise of easy and elegant tracking of how fit you are. The trackers give information on the calories you burn, the steps you take and even if you are getting sufficient sleep or not.

My friend was skeptical about how these devices could actually help him and on their real effectiveness. I told him that these trackers help to motivate and get us more actively involved in our fitness routines. Trackers are generally used by two types of people.

Some use these trackers because their physician recommended their use due to the underlying health issue they have, while the other type use it to know how effective their fitness routine is.
